The distance between Trichy and Chennai is 325 km. It takes a little more than five and half hours to reach Trichy from Chennai. The route is as follows: Chennai - Tambaram - Perungalathur - Vandalur - Otteri - Guduvancheri - Kattankolathur - Maraimalai Nagar (Ford factory) - Chengalpattu - Madurantakam - Melmaruvathur - Tindivanam - Vikravandi - Villupuram - Ulundurpettai - Asanur - Veppur - Perambalur - Srirangam - Tirichy. The road at Villupuram is not well maintained and there is a railway cross at Ulundurpettai which can take some time. But Ulundurpettai has some good restaurants, where one can have very decent meals.

This bus operator did not have option of online booking. It is open ticket bus. Bus started timing in CMBT at 1.30 Pm. Reach Perugalathur at 2.15 Pm. Then bus was started at 3.30 Pm. They try to get open ticket in Perugalathur. And then A/C. This bus was not A/C Sleeper. This bus was a NON-A/C Sleeper name only suitable. If you broadcast like this bus. Really unhappy by this bus on Sunday. In open thicket they charge Rs 300/- Per head. Then why we use online booking and put ticket. If they sale ticket in open, we also go and buy ticket in open.

Good drive from Chennai all the way to Trichy, except for the toll booths should be staggered so that they could speed up the collections.

The NH is straight. Nicely maintained. Except the toll plaza's the journey was smooth. Flat 4 hours is what it takes to reach Trichy. Once you reach Google map or take guidance, as the entrance to the city and route to Bus Stand is quite tricky.

All restaurants are available only to Villupuram. The entire stretch from Villupuram to Trichy via Perambulur is clear with less traffic.

The road trip to Trichy was awesome with such a nice road being laid down. Travelling with your friends to the place in this route gives a great time. You need to take care of your food as there are very few good restaurants on the way. The ECR Route is also awesome with some great locations on the route.
